Calico Pepper Frittata

For a dish that fits any meal, you can’t beat the frittata. We add red and green peppers and use the stovetop instead of the oven. —Loretta Kelcinski, Kunkletown, Pennsylvania
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 5 large eggs
  • 1-1/4 cups egg substitute
  • 1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced


  • In a large bowl, whisk the first five ingredients until blended.
  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add peppers and onion; cook and stir until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Pour in egg mixture. Mixture should set immediately at edges. Cook, uncovered, 8-10 minutes or until eggs are completely set, pushing cooked portions toward the center and letting uncooked eggs flow underneath. Cut into wedges.

    I made it in a 10" skillet, and used red, orange and yellow bell peppers, no green. Came together quickly and reheated great!

    I just used eggs with no egg substitute. Also added some cheddar cheese to flavor it up. While I love colored peppers, budget won't allow it, so I just used green peppers. The only time I purchase colored peppers is when I can catch them on sale. They would be good in this dish.

    Good flavour for this frittata. Next time I would use all eggs and no egg substitute. I found it took much longer than stated however.
